It kind of depends on the yarn and what I'm making. On finer weight yarns leaving it may not show, but I wouldn't leave a knot in a sock. In that case I'd tink back a bit and cut and restart. For heavier yarns I always cut since they'd show more unless it's a very detailed stitch pattern since it might not show there.

Knots in yarn are a part of knitting life as much as errata in patterns and dropped stitches. It's annoying, but no need to panic or get angry over it.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
